Visit the One World Observatory for free May 28

Jillian Anthony

The One World Observatory opens up on May 29, but for four hours the day before, you can take in the spectacular views for free. At a public open house from 9am and 1pm on May 28, you can be one of the first to visit the new lookout. Registration is open now.

Tickets to visit the observatory after it opens are on sale right now, too. You can buy tickets in advance online, and the observatory is open seven days a week, from 9am till midnight. You can also buy tickets in person from the box office starting at 8:30am at 285 Fulton St. 

Check out a video tour of the 360-degree views you'll see from way up high on the 101st floor—One World Trade is the tallest building in the U.S., so you'll get quite a view of our fair city.
